A FitDog Happy Mother's Day!

Rocco and I are in Chicago this weekend to celebrate  Mother's Day and we're looking forward to getting in some nice lakefront walks and visiting with some of our Chicago blog pals like Dolly the Doxie.

Rocco and I take time to tiptoe through the Chicago tulips!
So, since we're in Chicago, and since it's Mother's Day weekend, on this FitDog Friday we're bringing you some fun, prizes and a great cause for the furmoms.

First, we're  busy getting ready for today's (Friday, May 8) #EBParties Twitter party and we thought we'd tell you a little more about that since there are some really great prizes that we think active pups would love!

Check out the entire prize list, and while you're there, you can also RSVP for the party. Here are just a few of the awesome prizes:
  • Popware from Dexas, we love taking our collapsible bowl with us everywhere
  • A Paws Aboard life jacket from Fido Pet Products, perfect for summer water activities
  • A Mesh Dog Blanket from Back on Track, perfect for keeping active dogs' muscles warm before exercise or between agility runs!
There are lots more prizes we think you'll like (great Mother's gift ideas for moms of furkids, too!) so we hope you'll check it out... and maybe win something, too!

On a completely different note, this Saturday night we're attending an event to support an important cause. The Puppy Mill Project will be honoring the mother dogs left behind in puppy mills at their fifth annual The Mothers in the Mills fundraiser. The benefit is held on the eve of Mother’s Day to help end puppy mills and pay for rescued mill dogs overwhelming vet costs. If you're in Chicago and are interested in attending, you can purchase tickets here.

We're looking forward to some nice lakefront walks

We hope you have a Happy FitDog Mother's Day! Do you have any special activities planned for the Mothers of your furkids (or human kids!)?

The fun and games continue every Friday with FitDog Friday, the weekly Blog Hop brought to you by To Dog With LoveSlimDoggy and My GBGV Life to promote a healthy active lifestyle for pets (and their people, too!). Join in every Friday by linking up your FitDog story or visiting the blogs in the Hop.


  1. Have fun in Chicago! We are looking forward to a quiet weekend at home, hanging out together, relaxing and having some fun walks.

  2. Have a wonderful time in Chicago this weekend and a very happy Mother's Day to all moms and furmoms!

  3. Have a great trip and happy Mother's Day to you too, Chicago is an awesome city!

  4. It isn't Mothers Day here in the UK, but we hope you had a good day where you are! We don't live in such a big city, so we don't see those huge buildings!! This may sound silly, but they are rather fascinating for us!!!

  5. Enjoy Chicago! The puppy mill event sounds cool.

  6. Have a paw-tastic time on Chicago and enjoy those lakefront walks! I miss walking in places with breathtaking backdrops..sigh. Can't wait to move closer to suburbia/"urbia" again ;-)
    P.S. Just clicked on the RSVP link to see when the Twitter party would take place, and noticed that I just missed it. Bummer ~ those were some pretty cool prices!

    1. Oh poo! We do them about once a month, so stay tuned for the next one!

  7. Hope the weather stays warm for you!
